Spain: Thousands rally in Bilbao in support of Catalan referendum

Thousands rallied in support of the upcoming Catalan referendum on the streets of Bilbao, on Saturday. Protesters held Basque country flags with pro-independence slogans as well as placards with «Basques want to decide» connecting the Catalonian referendum with Basque's own historical independence movement. «Euskadi (Basque) has strength and Catalonia takes strength from Euskadi and Euskadi... Еще from Catalonia» said one protester in attendance at the rally. Basque claims for independence, unlike the Catalonian independence movement, underwent periods of violence and assassinations in the latter half of the twentieth century with the militant ETA group.
